Estartit - Medes Islands - Marató TV3

Swimming around the Medes Islands is spectacular. Every year Neda el Món organises a challenging crossing in a spectacular surrounding, the protected area of the Medes Islands. Since 2011 the crossing starts at the small Estartit beach, we swim between the big and the small Meda Island and finish again at the small Estartit beach.

Marató de TV3 supports research

This year the Marató focuses on raising funds to fight Covid-19. Like every year, Neda el Món organizes an event that allocates 100% of its profits to the Marató. That is why this year Neda el Món wants to organize this event more than ever. Let's fight Covid with open water swimming! 

With the goal of guaranteeing the safety of all the people who will be involved in some way in this event, Neda el Món has organized a safety protocol that we summarize below.

Safety Protocol Against Covid-19

  • Capacity limited to 500 swimmers.
  • The 5.2K and 3.4K swims are unified in a single 4.4K swim and the security of it will be static with boats, paddle-sufers and kaiaks.
  • Swimmers enrolled in the 3.4K and 5.2K modalities automatically become enrolled in the 4.4K modality.
  • The 1.7K swim will run through the initial and final parts of the 4.4K course.
  • The exits of each crossing will be made in groups of 10 swimmers who will start swimming every 30 seconds.
  • The departure time will be from 9:00 am to 9:25 am.

  • The physiotherapy service will be outside the operating area.
  • The sponsors' stands will be outside the operational area.
  • The Neda el Món store will be outside the operational area.

Safety buoy

In order to improve the swimmer’s security, the use of an ISHOF Neda el Món safety buoy is recommended.  This buoy makes swimmers more “visible”, and, in case a swimmer gets injured or very tired, he or she can cling to it, without affecting at all the swim effectiveness.

Services

  • Insurances. All swimmers and all volunteers will have a liability insurance and an insurance against accidents
  • Physiotherapy. On arrival a physiotherapy service will be offered by a team of professionals from “El Quinto Meta”.
  • Security/medical service. In first place the kayaks will provide security. In case anybody needs to be evacuated, pneumatic boats are available. In addition there will be a medically equipped boat and an ambulance at the arrival.
